Trump brings chocolate milk back to schools

The Trump White House is ending Michelle Obama’s hated school lunch rules by bringing chocolate milk back to school cafeterias.

Michelle Obama instituted a gulag, socialist lunch menu that left children hungry and malnourished, and now the Trump White House is bringing a little joy back to the school children lunch menu by reintroducing chocolate milk. reports…

The Trump administration is ending yet another of Michelle Obama’s hated, overly strict school lunch rules by bringing chocolate milk back to school lunch menus.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Thursday announced a new rule set to take effect on July 1 after the period of public comment. The new rule relaxes sodium limits and Obama’s whole-grain requirements. The rule will also allow milk with one percent fat back on the menu, ABC News reported.

“Schools need flexibility in menu planning so they can serve nutritious and appealing meals,” Perdue said this week. “Schools want to offer food that students actually want to eat. It doesn’t do any good to serve nutritious meals if they wind up in the trash can.”

Perdue has been dismissing Michelle Obama’s signature school lunch rules all year.

“This is not reducing the nutritional standards whatsoever,” Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said in May when announcing the Agriculture Department’s intention to bring chocolate milk back to schools. “I wouldn’t be as big as I am today without flavored milk.”

Perdue also slammed Obama’s rules as leading to too much waste. “If kids aren’t eating the food, and it’s ending up in the trash, they aren’t getting any nutrition — thus undermining the intent of the program,” he said.

I think this is the right decision. It is worth worrying about what children eat in schools. I know schools in which terrible food is also very messy in the kitchens. I know schools where everything is clean, but children only eat chocolate bars and shop food. But schools, in which everywhere a healthy diet, without dough and sweet – never seen. For example, I work at writing service and every day at the expense of the company we bring food, in which there are many vitamins – fruits, vegetables, nuts, etc. Because they are worried about our health.
